“How to Become a Diving Instructor and be Successful”
‘Career in SCUBA’ is a brand new book for those who are getting ready to get serious about SCUBA diving as a career choice. It aims to help them overcome some of the mental, motivational and administrative obstacles that may lay ahead.
The author, Nick Derutter is a PADI™ Platinum Course Director. He has trained hundreds of diving instructors and thousands of recreational divers worldwide. He describes his motivation for writing the book as follows:
“Despite all the available media, I often notice that aspiring instructors enter their training either very underprepared or with false expectations of what it takes to succeed in this industry. At the same time, and paradoxically so, there’s this persistent notion that there’s no money to be made in diving. My goal is to set the record straight, get people in the right mindset and help them turn this career choice into a success story. 2020 was a very difficult year for many in our industry and we need motivated, positive ambassadors for the sport and the environment, now more than ever.”
With ‘Career in SCUBA’, he makes the point that the diving industry is a very viable career choice for those who put in the right groundwork, even in today’s changing world. The book walks aspiring diving instructors through the preparatory steps, from choosing the right training agency and dive center, crafting a SCUBA resume and how to find employment, all the way to insurance and retirement planning. It also contains worksheets, as well as advice and stories from other diving professionals who have succeeded at making SCUBA diving a viable career choice.
‘Career in SCUBA’ is available for purchase in e-book and paperback format through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and wherever quality books are sold.
